P 2550 Class Size

The Board is aware that class size has bearing upon effective teaching. It, therefore, directs the Superintendent to work with his/her administrative staff in establishing a reasonable and equitable class enrollment for each teacher.

The Board understands that achieving this goal is dependent upon the financial resources available to the District. In determining the size of various classes the administration will consider the following factors:

  1. The type of load which will help the teacher be most effective with the students in the class.
  2. Physical limitation such as number of student stations.
  3. The subject matter and type of students to be enrolled.

The District may employ temporary teacher aides in Grades K-1-2-3 when class size exceeds State Classification Standards. (See also Policy 6221 - Teacher Aides.) Temporary teacher aides will be employed when the ratio exceeds one (1) to twenty-seven (27). Temporary teacher aide services will be terminated when the class enrollment is reduced below the State Classification Standards.
